Compliance Program Design and Implementation
With the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, all health care entities must have effective compliance program implementation. However, designing and implementing a compliance program can be difficult for smaller organizations, such as nursing homes, home health agencies, and hospices, because they may lack the necessary resources and expertise to incorporate all of the compliance program elements recommended by the Office of Inspector General (OIG). These organizations should engage a knowledgeable health care compliance consulting firm to help establish an effective program and avoid the consequences of non-compliance.

Experience Matters: Designing Your Corporate Compliance Program
Strategic Management can help any size organization successfully implement an effective compliance program at a reasonable cost because we have extensive experience in designing, developing and implementing compliance programs in the health care industry. Strategic Management has been building compliance programs that address the seven standard elements of an effective compliance program as outlined by the OIG since 1992. Since then, hundreds of clients have benefited from our services that help develop, maintain and enhance compliance programs across a range of facilities including hospitals, SNFs, DME suppliers, home health agencies, hospices, physician practices and more.
Strategic Management excels in compliance program design and implementation because of our first-hand knowledge and understanding of the Federal government. Our consultants have decades of experience in health care compliance, and many are former executives from the OIG, FBI, and CMS. Our consultants have had hands-on experience managing the oversight functions related to provider operations, including Strategic Management’s CEO who served as Inspector General for 11 years.
Understanding Your Facility’s Needs
When establishing a compliance program, Strategic Management focuses on tailoring compliance program elements to fit with the unique structure, operation, and culture of health care organizations to:
- Reduce risks and vulnerabilities for the organization, directors, and officers
- Reduce the likelihood of a non-compliant act or event that could give rise to a liability
- Enable quick and effective corrective action, if non-compliant events occur
Critical success factors we pay attention to are:
- Involving the client in all phases of the project
- Substantially reducing the chances of fraud, abuse or various “whistleblower” actions in the workplace
- Promoting a positive reputation of quality health care
Regardless of the size of your organization, Strategic Management can provide expert advice on effective compliance program design and implementation at a reasonable cost.
